    Default Fed up!😡 Honda civic 2004 EagleEye

    Salam! I own a honda civic 2004 vti oriel MT with d17a installed by previous owner. I have the car since 6-7 months now and have oil change once (as its used like 100-150 km /week). The thing is since the first oil change its engine noise has increased alot i had checked with several mechanics and all they say is car is absoultely normal but it dosent sound normal to me. Before oil change car was dead silent and after oil change its sound increased and is bothering me much. I poured havoline 20.50 after consulting many people. One more thing before oil change i saw that oil level was above the full mark on the dip stick but i poured 3.6 litre oil and it remained bit below full mark of dip stick. Engine is in water dropping state and is healthy (as per mechanics). Kindly guide that what could b the problem? Does d17a have adjustable tappets?

    Bhai porch main cold start par car fast idle par hoti hay to shor to karay gee. Traffic main srart gari ke pas jain to apko lagay ga ke gari start hi nahi hay...

    By the way, ZIC is better for your car than havoline. Even bikers are shifting to other alternatives now...

    I guess valve clearance is not good and you are using wrong oil, this engine needs 5W30 or 10W30 oil API SL SM or SN. You poured Havoline after consulting many dumbass mechanics who think they can even adjust race and mixture on these cars they are retards. Get your car to some mechanic who knows what he is doing else take it to Honda dealership.

    Recommended oil is 5w20 or 5w30 for these engines. Use them only.

    M not talking about cold start m talking about warm up engine. Engine noise inside cabin is very less nd it feels car had shut down (but actualy thats not the case). Nd i had noticed this thing in garage to at 800r pm car sounds like tractor when u r out car :/

    What is the milage on your car? Do you feel anything wrong while driving? Misfires or lags? Is it running on Gas or petrol? What else did you do before it got loud? Except for the oil change? Also give us the history of any mechanical work done. And please explain the sound?

    Is it sort of a rough noise? Because it might be weak or broken engine mounts.

    If all if fine and its just the sound, what do the mechanics say about it?

    Btw have you checked the exhaust leakage? The thing that silences these tractor like sounds...

    You did not mention the milage again, yet you said after the first oil change in your post first after what? Buying the car? Or engine change?

    Here lies the mystery behind the noise.

    Oil change.

    How long did the car drive after the last oil change?

    Actually the New oil serves its time In two different stages.

    First stage is cleaning up the deposited gunk inside your engine with added detergents in your new oil.

    Second stage is sealing the metal inside your engine with anti wear lubricants.

    If you have changed the oil too soon that means you are over cleaning your engine and you didn't let the sealant interval of the oil start.

    You surely have changes the oil too soon as you said it drives hardly 100kms per week. That too not. On Highway. Your cars running is low and your oil hardly gets time to treat your engine.


    What I would suggest is an 8k oil change. Run your oil for 8k. And then change it. This will go with time as your oil gets old.

    It's still in cleaning process.


    We came with this issue back in 2014 with an idsi city with a member.

    Xulfiqar bhau was kind enough to shed light on this mystery and get. Us out of our misery. Refer to that post. Of you may.

    Jazakallah Khairan
